Cher’s relationship with Alexander “A.E.” Edwards seems to be heating up. On December 25, the musical icon shared a photo on Twitter of a giant diamond ring in a pear shape being held by Edwards, displaying the jewelry box and his flame manicure design.
“THERE R NO WORDS,” Cher wrote in the caption, adding, “ALEXANDER, A.E.”
It seems like an engagement is being strongly implied here, but a few hours later, Cher posted the pic again, saying coyly that she posted it “cause his nails are so cool.”
People are still wondering if the pair are planning a wedding, but here’s what is known about Edwards until there’s an official announcement.
Who is Alexander “A.E.” Edwards?
Edwards is the VP of A&R at Def Jam Records, and is known for his relationship with model and reality star Amber Rose. He and Rose got together in 2018, and had a son in 2019, who they named Slash Electric Alexander Edwards. They broke up on 2021.
How long have Cher and Edwards been together?
Cher started tweeting about Edwards in November, sharing heart emojis and pics of him to her fans. They were spotted holding hand in Los Angeles that same month. The 76-year-old singer and 36-year-old artist apparently met in September at Paris Fashion Week.
How did their romance start?
Cher said in a tweet that Edwards approached her.
“He’s 36 & In End He Came after me,Till we met in the middle.He’s Consistent one ,I’m The Skittish one. We love each other…. LADIES NEVER GIVE UP,” she wrote.
Later, she discussed their relationship on The Kelly Clarkson Show, addressing the age gap.
“On paper it’s kind of ridiculous but in real life we get along great,”she said. “He’s fabulous, and I don’t give men qualities that they don’t deserve. But he’s very kind, he’s very smart. He’s very talented and he’s really funny so, and I think he’s quite handsome.”
She added, “If I hadn’t met younger men in my life I would’ve never had a date…Older men just didn’t like me all that much. … Younger men don’t care if you’re, you know, funny or outrageous and want to do stupid things and you have a strong personality. I’m not giving up my personality for anybody.”
